Hi everyone! I'm happily motoring to work in a newly acquired 2006 ZX3 5 speed. It's got over 170k miles, and is a little rough. My intent is to repair and replace things as needed and keep this little road warrior going. Through two tanks of fuel, I've achieved 35 mpg! This is my first Focus. My other automotive interests are Mustangs, F150s, and Panther platform cars like the Crown Victoria.

Welcome!

As time goes by, I expect you will appreciate more and more the great handling capabilities of the Focus (Mk1 and 1.5 especially). Very easy to drive it long distances, especially for an economy car... 35mpg highway, and pretty easy to avoid deer on the back roads, once you get to know it. Keep overly good tires on it, they make a huge difference in both of the things Focus' do well.
